As we approached h the Straits of Corfu, it was easy to see the acceleration zone, the winds being compressed in between the mountains, the white caps appearing on the sea ahead. Lessons learned, we decided to furl the headsail and go just with the Mainsail. As the winds accelerated we didn’t even experienced much speed loss without the Genoa. The two other yachts doing the same route motored through.
